For the visually challenged reader, the photo shows a small kitten looking inquisitivelyfrom under a table.

THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Looking at the Moon After Rain” by Li Po: broken, blowing, bright, sea, fan, hum, moon, clouds, shining, rising, stretching, common

Havens and hideaways for fun

Under the table, by the broken chair

Stretching her paws, which is one of her common pose

Feels the fan blowing and she runs

Runs to the sea waiting for me

As the sun rising and shining all day

We always have fun, my kitty baby and me

Playing hide and seek by the quay

Quay and wharf on all river side

Some dark clouds and we have to run back home

And she’ll go back to her haven and hideaway

Likes the hum of the fridge and hide

Hide away she knows no heavens

The smallest box, the smelliest blanket

On the flower bed, beside the tortoises’ fence

For her hideaways and havens*
